What is Comprehensive Insurance Coverage?
When your car is damaged for any reason besides a collision, Comprehensive coverage will pay the cost after your deductible is met.

How Comprehensive Insurance Coverage works
Collision coverage is intended for when you, someone, or something collides with your vehicle.
Comprehensive coverage is intended for damage done to your vehicle by fire, weather (like a flood), vandalism, or even an animal.The main difference between the two coverages is whether another car or someone’s property is struck in an accident.
People may sometimes refer to comprehensive coverage as “full coverage”, which is not correct. “Full coverage” is an unofficial term that is generally intended to describe multiple coverages that, together, provide you and your car with the most protection.
If you’re looking for full coverage, consider the following combination of coverages from Liberty Mutual:
